Just two days after the Super Bowl, the rumor mill is in full flow around the league. In Cleveland, the Browns organisation is non-committal towards rookie QB Brandon Weedon. Owner Jimmy Haslam, confirmed it reports Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com.
"I think Norv [Turner] and [Rob] Chudzinski have been very open that they like a lot of what Brandon does, but we're going to have competition at that position," Haslam told Cleveland reporters at the Super Bowl, "and I think competition makes us all better."
A logical candidate would be the 49ers' Alex Smith, who played under new offensive co-ordinator Norv Turner when Turner held the same position in San Francisco in 2006. Smith played under new offensive co-ordinator Norv Turner in 2006.
With Turner, Smith completed 58.1 percent of his passes for 2,890 yards with 16 touchdowns and 16 interceptions - and but for a concussion might well have led the 49ers to the Super Bowl himself instead of his replacement Colin Kaepernick. Smith could be traded before free agency begins March 12.
